Feb 18th 2010 11:48PM I am going to chime in on my thoughts on spellpower vs haste
as a shaman gears up spellpower is rather easy to come by on gear, through our weapon enchant, and totem choices. Haste on the other hand is harder to come by on gear. Since haste has a large impact on spell throughput for chain heal, healing way, and lesser healing way (soft cap at 1269 for lhw) I think the argument that spellpower comes naturally anyway through gear and that haste should be gemmed for to help attain the throughput is a valid argument.
as for mp5, mp5 is important if you are a shman and find that you are going oom in a fight, however, if going oom is not an issue than mp5 has a lower usage. For intro shamans mp5 will be important until the gear comes when that is no longer needed (in which case glyph int wheich gives mana regen,crit, and sp). Most raiding shamans have little trouble with mana regen so they would not glyph for water mastery but rather earthshield, chain heal and then riptide, lesser healing, or healing streaam as preferred. Usually I switch between those glyphs depending on what boss is being tackled. Even healing way glyph has its usefullness like alganon or valithria.
